Birds in Shadow Cliffs Regional Park (Pleasanton, CA)

Today I have photos from Shadow Cliff Regional Park in Pleasanton, CA. Shadow Cliff Regional Park is part of the East Bay Parks District, and is a great recreational area to visit. There are many picnic tables, and a lake that you can swim in. Also, the park is a great place for some nice bird and animal photography as there are many ducks, birds, and geese there.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To see my best photos from Shadow Cliff Regional Park, use this link.

Message from the Photographer: Sorry for not posting recently! I spent the weekend in Yosemite National Park and took over 600 photos in there. There was no Wifi where I was staying, so I couldn't keep you touch with you followers even through my social media fan pages. It will take me quite a while to look through, pick out the good photos, and process the RAW files. Don't expect me to post anything from my trip up too soon as I also have a lot of school work to catch up on, so I will be slowly doing this. If you want, you can follow me on my personal G+, as I will most likely post a few shots up on there before I actually do an official blog post with the photos.

Not too sure, but this could be a Golden Crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia atricapilla). If I'm wrong, please correct me in the comments below.
